Warner Bros. is planning 11 superhero movies from now through 2020

See what's next for DC's biggest heroes and villains

Kicking off this March with
DC Comics is finally playing catch-up.

While Marvel is working on the 13th film in its cinematic universe, the DC multiverse — which includes hugely popular heroes Wonder Woman, Batman, and Superman — only includes 2013's "Man of Steel."

But that's about to change. In October 2014, the studio announced 10 new films over the next five years, kicking off this March with "Batman v Superman."

Read on to see what's next for DC's biggest heroes and villains.

In "Batman v Superman," we'll see Superman answer for the damage he caused to Metropolis at the end of "Man of Steel."

We'll meet Ben Affleck's new Batman, who will not be among the Man of Steel's fans.

Behind the scenes, however, Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg) may be pulling the strings, trying to manipulate conflict between the two.

The film will also introduce Doomsday, a superpowered titan that it appears Luthor will create from a resurrected General Zod.

Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) will join Batman and Superman in the battle against Doomsday. We'll also get to see a few other heroes for the first time: Cyborg (Ray Fisher), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), and The Flash (Ezra Miller).

"Batman v Superman" is coming to theaters March 25.

Next up is "Suicide Squad," about a group of supervillains who team up to take down an even bigger villain.

The film will introduce fan favorite Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) to the big screen.

The full squad consists of Cary Fukuhara (Katana), Adam Beach (Slipknot), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress), Jay Hernandez (El Diablo), Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Killer Croc), Jai Courtney (Captain Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flag), and Will Smith (Deadshot).

Fans are especially excited to see The Joker (Jared Leto) pop up. We're not entirely sure what his role is in the film, but he doesn't appear to be a squad member.

"Suicide Squad" will be in theaters on August 5.

In 2017, Wonder Woman will get her own movie.

Raised on an all-female island of powerful warrior women, DC's chief creative officer, Geoff Johns, describes her as the "best fighter" in the DC Universe.

One of Wonder Woman's biggest rivals is Ares, the god of war. In the comics, he subtly manipulates politicians into escalating conflicts. War is connected to his power. The more conflict in the world, the more power he gains.

The film will also star Chris Pine as Steve Trevor, Wonder Woman's love interest. In most comic-book iterations he is either a soldier or spy who helps her during World War II.

"Wonder Woman" is coming out on June 23, 2017.

"Justice League — Part I" will be in theaters on November 17, 2017. This will feature multiple DC heroes in the first on-screen team-up of the legendary comic-book team.

Details are scarce, but director Zack Snyder has confirmed that we'll see our first hints at the full team in "Batman v Superman."

"The Flash" is the first of many solo movies coming after "Justice League — Part I" on March 23, 2018. Ezra Miller will star as the fastest man alive.

Barry Allen is a young scientist trying to solve his mother's murder. While in the lab, he's struck by lightning and gains super speed. He can run across water and through walls and even fast enough to travel through time.

Next is Jason Momoa starring as Arthur Curry, aka Aquaman. Momoa describes Curry as "half man, half god." He can breathe under water, communicate with sea life, and is super strong.

Aquaman's heritage may be important to the film. Geoff Johns says he's "a man whose trapped between two worlds, but has a responsibility of protecting both of them."

"Aquaman" is coming on July 27, 2018.

"Shazam" is set for an April 5, 2019, release. In the comics, Shazam is a teenager named Billy given powerful abilities by a dying wizard. By shouting "Shazam!" he becomes the magically empowered superhero.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson will star as antihero Black Adam, Shazam's rival. Warner Bros. has yet to announce an actor as the title character.

Shazam and Black Adam have been gifted with very similar powers. These include flight, strength, genius intellect, and the ability to shoot lightning.

"Justice League — Part II," featuring the fully assembled team, will be released on June 14, 2019.

Next, Ray Fisher will star as Victor Stone, an athlete who gains a cybernetic body after a horrific accident, in "Cyborg," out on April 3, 2020.

Cyborg has super strength, doesn't feel pain, and is a "technopath." "He can just interface seamlessly with anything technological," Fisher says. "His greatest weakness is actually trying not to succumb to the technology — trying to stay human."

"Green Lantern Corps" will focus on Green Lantern and the galactic space order that gave him his magic ring.

Warner Bros. has not announced which actor will take on the role. It's set for a June 19, 2020, release.

A solo Batman film is also in the works. No release date has been announced yet.
